Spurs ground out an important win vs an impressive Southampton side in a game of two halves with Tottenham looking irresistible in the first half and then shaky in the second. Goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli made sure they made it 10 home wins on the trot despite James Ward-Prowse’s early second half strike. Hugo Lloris – 6 – A quiet enough afternoon for the skipper with one notable save from distance from Cedric. Kyle Walker – 6 – Compared to his usual high standard this season, this was one of Kyle’s more disappointing matches. Sloppy in possession and didn't make as many forward runs especially in the 2nd half. Eric Dier – 7 – Looks a different player when playing in a back 3 to a back 4. Good in possession and calm when called upon. Toby Alderweireld – 6 – Would have got a rating of 7 or even 8 if it wasn't for his error for Southampton’s goal. Looked an easy clearance but he missed the ball. Other than that it was another classy performance by the big Belgian. Jan Vertonghen – 8 – My Man of the Match. Jan looks in his element on the left of the back 3. Pushed forward on attack and defended brilliantly when needed. Brilliant performance. Ben Davies – 7 – Another very solid display from the Welsh left back. He has really grown into the wing back role in the absence of Danny Rose. Very capable deputy. Victor Wanyama – 6 – Much like Walker, this was not Vic’s best performance. Received a yellow card and gave the ball away a number of times. Still protect the back three extremely well but not a performance to his high standards. Mousa Dembele – 7 - One of our most consistent players. Week in week out he puts in a brilliant shift. Glides by players with ease. Set up our first goal with a wonderful turn. Christian Eriksen – 7 – Played some phenomenal football in the first half. Picking out some ridiculously good passes and was rewarded with a lovely goal which he just guided the ball into the bottom corner from 25 yards with his weak foot. Faded out of the match hugely in the second half and was a bit disappointing on the ball. Dele Alli – 7 – Another game, another Dele Alli goal. Dele stepped up in the absence of Harry Kane and coolly stroked home a penalty which he won himself. Heung Min Son – 6 – A bit of a frustrating day for Sonny who had to fill the big boots of Harry Kane and lead the line today. Missed an early chance and didn't get much of a sniff after. Winks - N\A Trippier - N\A Janssen - N\A Mixed feelings after this match. Brilliant first half and after we got our second you would expect us to get a few more like vs West Brom and Stoke earlier in the season. An uncharacteristic mistake at the back gifted Southampton a way back into the match but we defended well in the end. Our attack was disappointing in the 2nd half however.
